Prep Time 1 hr 40 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Servings 4


  • 1 envelope active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted plus more for brushing


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the dough hook, combine one-quarter of a cup of warm water, one envelope of yeast and two tablespoons of sugar. Allow the mixture to stand for five minutes.
  • Add one cup of Bisquick, one-half cup of buttermilk and two tablespoons of melted butter. Beat until blended.
  • Add the remaining cup of Bisquick and beat on high speed for two minutes or until the dough forms a soft ball. If the dough is too sticky, add another one-quarter of a cup of Bisquick.
  • Lightly flour a work surface with Bisquick, and place the dough onto it. Knead with the heel of your hand for approximately five minutes. Transfer the dough into a greased bowl and cover with a clean towel. Set the bowl aside for one hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Grease a round pan with butter.
  • Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces and roll each one into a ball. Place them into the prepared pan, cover once again, and let rise for an additional thirty minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees.
  • Uncover the rolls and bake for twenty minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove the rolls from the oven and brush with melted butter.
